Seven hundred hectares, located in what is widely regarded as one of the finest wine growing areas in Sardinia; here, the rolling hills and endless plains facing out to sea are home to the vineyards of the Santa Maria La Palma winery, in a part of the island that boasts enviable paedo-climatic conditions. Perfect for the making of Sardinian wines.
It is a story that speaks of the ability to trust one another, and of the desire to build something great, without forgetting how much beauty and how much value are hidden away in what surrounds us: endless plains facing out to sea, sheltered by a cove between the Gulf of Alghero and the Bay of Porto Conte. These are fortunate lands, caressed by the wind and kissed by the sun. It is a story that speaks of the precious lessons learned through daily toil. This story, our story, starts very long ago and lasts all the way to today.
It all began in 1946, in the Nurra area, which had been reclaimed and given to the farm workers following the Agrarian Reform that was implemented in Sardinia in the immediate post-war period. The locals were blessed with skilled, courageous hands that had the capacity to capture the soul of a part of the island that seems to have been designed for wine making. And so, in 1959, one hundred of them decided to enter into a co-operative and to found the Cantina Santa Maria la Palma (Santa Maria la Palma Winery).
Today, past and future are being combined seamlessly through the new technologies deployed in every project put together by the Winery, which can leverage a tradition that has always married innovation to love for the local soil.
700 hectares of land on the estate are under vine, giving rise to a wealth of highly nuanced Sardinian wines, all made with the same passion and dedication as always, while also taking advantage of everything that state-of-the-art technology has to offer.
The dedication to quality is the thread that runs throughout our history: selecting methods and techniques to produce the finest grapes, enhancing and protecting the soil – all with a view to exceeding our consumers’ expectations and to being worthy inheritors of this noble tradition that we are carrying forward.
The Tenuta Sant’Anna Estate was founded in the 60’s in the heart of the Lison Pramaggiore DOC region, where the clay soils of this area were since Roman times dedicated to viticulture, and so throughout the Middle Ages, during which these lands provided wine for the Republic of Venice at the height of its splendour.
Tenuta Sant’Anna has been an active pioneer in viticulture since its very first grape harvests. At a time when wine was on the whole consumed daily, Tenuta Sant’Anna gave it greater significance, producing wines from single vine varieties and exalting the characteristics of each grape, opening new horizons for wine lovers and helping to create a worldwide image for Italian wine.
Adding control and management of the supply chain, from our vineyard to your glass, through the bottling phase, ensures the authenticity and freshness that for years have proudly distinguished our Sparkling and Still Wines.
The company philosophy is to offer wines of great pleasure and easy to match to the great Italian dishes.
It has always favoured the exaltation of the varietal that can enhance the noblest characteristics of each wine.
The Paolo Cottini vineyards are located in two areas of the Valpolicella, in the Negrar valley facing south-west, at an altitude of about 580 metres, and in Valgatara at an altitude of about 250 metres facing south-east. He explains that the different topography and altitude produces grapes with distinctive characters which he combines in various proportions “to give life to our wines.”
Paolo’s winery is new, but he is the third generation of winemakers, his father Silvano passing on his knowledge. Grapes grown are the typical triumverate of this region: Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, and he produces four classic appellations: Soave (not tasted) and the red wines Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Ripasso and Amarone. It’s a neat summary of Valpolicella: at the top of the Pyramid is Amarone, famously made from air-dried grapes as a rich and powerful red wine of 15.5% alcohol or more. At the base is Valpolicella, made from freshly picked grapes and, in the middle, comes Valpolicella Ripasso: the wine fermented from fresh grapes but on a deep layer of dried skins from the fermented Amarone grapes.

The territory of Torre Rosazza is right inside the privileged Colli Orientali of Friuli Micro-zone, which is recongised today by the name Rosazzo.
Friuli is the region for Italian white wines and the ‘Colli di Rosazzo’ (hills of Rosazzo) represent one of the most appreciated Friulan area because the microclimate makes it possible to obtain a high level of quality.
Capable of creating exciting wines and providing an interesting glimpse of the territory and the enological culture of Friuli, the wines of Torre Rosazza spotlight the territory and its traditions with technical know-how and experience. The company prides itself on being authentic ‘artisans of taste’. Our enologists give every wine its own distinct personality. Each phase of the productive process is inspected and its initial phase arises from a ten-year collaboration where experts select the clones that are the most typical and suitable for creating great wines.
Since its first contacts with viticulture, the Rosazzo area has upheld a particularly strong wine-producing mission and its love of wine has been passed down throughout the centuries.
Castelli del Grevepesa is a Wine Co-operative established in 1965 by a small group of winegrowers in Tuscany. With the intention to bring together a group of people from different areas of the Chianti Classico region whose common purpose was to preserve the centuries old traditions of the Tuscan viticulture. Since its foundation they have concentrated on producing high quality wines by carefully selecting the grapes and by complying with the strict regulations of the Law and the Consorzio “Gallo Nero” (Black Rooster).
Today the co-operative has grown to over 120 members whose estates are in the Chianti Classico Area.
There wines have been recognised in the Mundus Vini Awards year on year receiving Gold and Silver for many of their Chianti Classico varieties.
Damilano Wine Company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo with historic traditions.
The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the winery’s current owners, began to vinify his own estate wines. The town of Barolo resides in the generous and beautiful Langhe region, and its name was taken on by the “king of wines”.
It is with great passion that Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, developed with his children a love for the vineyards, selecting and maintaining them with great care in order to improve the quality of the wines. Over time, the winery’s production was transformed into a jewel that was passed down with pride in 1997 to Giacomo’s grandchildren, who continue to manage the winery today.
Paolo, Mario and Guido Damilano, the fourth generation, have brought new vigor to the family business, strengthening and developing the fruit which this extraordinary land has to offer. Always looking forward, they continually seek innovations to further refine Damilano’s production.
The secret to high quality is found in the grapes destined to become Damilano wines. The grapes are cultivated in 53 hectares of prestigious and select vineyards that the company looks after with the same attention and respect as the winery’s founders, as well as the skills of modern winemaking in order to pursue the highest quality. Damilano’s Nebbiolo production culminates in the great cru wines: Cannubi, Liste, Brunate and Cerequio.
The cru wines Cannubi, Brunate, Cerequio and Liste have distinct expressions that showcase the differences in terroir, ranging from the innate elegance of Cannubi and Brunate to the more decisive and structured character of Cerequio and Liste.
GIULIANO BORTOLOMIOL – The founder of Bortolomiol. The master in applying the Charmat method first made Prosecco Brut sensing that it would become a very popular sparkling wine all over the world. Today, it is that same inquisitive spirit which drives his daughters Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana. They seek technological innovation, the highest quality starting from meticulous inspection of the grapes and attach great importance to communication.
The company is currently run by Giuliano’s four daughters and her mother Ottavia. This generational change has brought with it a new managerial vision, but without altering the principles of family tradition: first and foremost product quality and promotion of the area. The company’s future is expansion. Not meaning just targeting interesting markets to be launched on, aware and proud of the distinctive designation. But also an authentic company commitment towards projects of an environmental and humanitarian nature. Alongside the women of Bortolomiol, Gianfranco Zanon is another pillar of the company. An oenologist who pours passion into interpreting and fulfilling the company’s mission.
Bortolomiol is dedicated to uniting their commitment to honouring this important part of local history with a project for sustainable agriculture which will safeguard the rural heritage of the area for the future. This responsibility for their land and territories is exactly the reason why Bortolomiol has started its project for organic, sustainable and low-impact cultivation.
The Tradizionali Collection
The Tradizionali Collection began with the selection of some prime areas of land in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG region, followed by a close collaboration with the growers to produce a grape of extraordinary quality, and culminating in the genesis of these four premium wines. The collection offers a range of historic sparkling wines in the Brut, Extra Dry, Dry and Demi Sec categories.
The Tradizionali Collection embodies the very essence of the sustainability philosophy that Bortolomiol has been championing for years.
The colour schemes of the new bottles are inspired by nature, the four seasons and the Italian countryside’s characteristic hues. They are shades redolent of the sensations and scents of Italy’s lands and hills, seas and skies, refreshed and redesigned to make them even more unique and iconic.
Today Prosecco is no longer the name of a grape variety but has become a dedicated area. And the variety has been given its original name: “glera”.
Diferente is an attitude: everybody can enjoy it. The brand is opening up a world of possibilities, giving everyone a chance to enjoy all the flavour of a glass of champagne or a crisp, refreshing cocktail, with none of the alcohol and calories.
Diferente is the exclusive alcohol-free alternative to premium Champagne, Gin and Vodka for social drinkers, offering the same experience as the most iconic products – to enjoy either straight-up, “on-the-rocks” or blended in cocktails – with no restrictions and no drawbacks.
Diferente has the same taste, smell and look of the real thing, but none of the negative effects. It is a safe, tasty alternative that meets the ingredient requirements of both the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Economic Community.
Diferente is for anybody who prefers not to indulge or cannot drink alcohol, and for temporary teetotalers, such as pregnant women, drivers and young people under the legal age for drinking, sports professionals and people on medication. It is suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets.
Diferente is created by distilling the finest essence of premium drinks, which are ‘rebuilt’ thanks to a patent-pending production method, involving the complementary know-how of herbalists, chemists, oenologists and the suppliers of the finest ingredients, to produce an unsweetened, gloriously-flavored drink worthy of the finest tables and occasions.
Diferente’s revolutionary molecular structure is able to activate brain receptors and sensory neurotransmitters just like real Champagne, Gin and Vodka, with no drawbacks and no side effects.

The Majolini Winery rises in the district of Ome, in the heart of Franciacorta. Franciacorta, coincides with the name of the area in which it is produced. Franciacorta is the product of the grapes that exclusively come from a unique terroir with a limited geographical area.
The Majolini family has been associated with wine in Franciacorta since the fifteenth century. In fact, a native red grape variety called “Majolina” still today is witness to this historical past. In 1981, the descendants of the family set up the existing farm and restored the ancient vineyards on the hills of Ome and the surrounding municipalities. This North-eastern area of Franciacorta is made up of layers of pure white limestone (known as ‘medolo’), which can give minerals and structure to the Franciacorta wines produced here. The winery was built on the high hilly area of Valle in Ome, in a very panoramic location. It was modeled on the architecture of old farm-houses of the area and built with local stone – “medolo” – so as to fit harmoniously into a landscape of great beauty. So it is in this soil, climate and harmony with nature that the Majolini create their wines, the fruit of skillful care within a production cycle that has continued in line with their great love of the land and its traditions.
From 1981 to today the goal has been to increase the potential of the vineyards, protect and increase the value of the territory, and optimise the productive procedures.

Poggio Ridente – ‘the Smiling Hill’ is the name of the vineyard on which thrive the vines Barbera, Albarossa and Bonarda. Located on the summit, 491 meters above sea level and because of its particular climatic conditions it is called the “Riviera del Monferrato”.
Striving to maintain the sustainable advantage of value, the Poggio Ridente winery found it necessary to move forward to conserve the environment and its natural defence inspired by the vineyards. More than seven years ago, the winery initiated the biological management of the vineyard and the cellar. Certified by ICEA (Environment and Ethical Certification Institute), Poggio Ridente produces grapes that are grown independent of chemicals and certified organic.
In all, the company has 20 hectares of which 9 hectares are vineyards, surrounded by woods and hedges, all over 450 meters above sea level. This biological chain of events lends us towards a horizon even more fascinating, which is our quest to be transformed into a biodynamic farm.
“In discussions between Luigi, our agronomist and I, we talk about how our family and company can intervene in the vineyard and winery. I look to my father, who has always upheld past traditions, and I am convinced that today the future is to seize that part of the past that, today has become so innovative. The use of traditional methods then, that are very similar to biodynamics, is an opportunity for this small company to offer an alternative from the bigger wine producers, and allows us to create a charming wine that is the direct expression of the earth from where it was born”.
“Organic wine” means that in the country, for the defense and nutrition of plants, only substances found in nature are used, or albeit those obtained by simple manmade processes. No chemical processing or genetic manipulation, no OGMs, synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides, but above all only “contact”, that is, on the outside of the plant and above all the fruit that you will reap, not inside.
Organic grapes therefore benefit and enjoy a life cycle that is independent of chemicals.
Organic viticulture in Italy has been certified by appropriate bodies accredited by the Ministry of Agriculture.
The Azienda Agricola Poggio Ridente is certified by ICEA.
